The more we get to know about Conor McGregor, the more we realize how accurate the description of McGregor as a “green-blooded Diaz brother” really is. McGregor has a 100% finish rate with 11 knockouts in his 12 wins, is on an 8-fight winning streak and has mean-mugged through them all with 145 pounds of Irish intensity rarely seen in the west. Dude headbutts his opponents at weigh-ins like he’s Ronda Rousey, is getting increasingly difficult to wrangle to media obligations, and delivers lashings like the verbal Pontius Pilate. He is a dual-weight champion in Cage Warriors, goes on tangents like a straight line cutting through a curve, and inspires opening paragraphs full of puns and analogistic comparisons.
Conor McGregor = rawesome with a splash of the white, green and orange. We hope he has a camera around for whatever St. Paddy’s Day celebration he takes part in.
But for now, let’s focus our attention on the entire Rise of Conor McGregor MTV UK documentary by Demetrio Marquez, which is here to educate us on the man who will make his UFC debut at UFC on Fuel TV 9 vs. Marcus Brimage.
